Palghar: Brothel owner confesses murdering her husband, two others

Palghar: A day after her confession of murdering three people, Boisar Police had recovered skeletal remains of Sarita Bharati’s husband Sahdev on Wednesday who was reportedly murdered in 2004 under a cement slab at her house.

Sarita, 42-year-old brothel owner from Palghar had reportedly killed her husband after her husband found out about her illicit relationship with her lover Kamlesh Chavan.

The Police said they murdered him after he caught the duo in a compromising position.

The Boisar Police had reportedly received a tip-off of the presence of two more dead bodies and reached to dig her 2 BHK house on Thursday but could not retrieve anything.

The duo after killing Sahdev disposed of his body in a septic tank and later covered it with cement said assistant inspector Mansinh Patil.

According to the Police, victim Sahdev’s upper and lower jaw are intact and his bone marrow is in good condition, which could be used for testing his DNA.

The Police are now currently investigating the matter and digging the surrounding areas to recover the remains of the other victims murdered.

Assitant Inspector Patil said, “Sarita ran a brothel in Dandipada, Boisar (East). We had arrested her and one of her customers for prostitution under the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act (PITA) on Sunday. They were remanded in police custody till December 9, when they will be produced before the Palghar court.”

He also said that they have yet to arrest the culprits as they are still investigating the prostitution racket. “We are on the hunt for Kamlesh, who is absconding. We will also question her son Sandesh, 25, who is a tempo driver in Palghar.”

The Boisar Police suspects Sandesh, might have helped the duo in carrying out the murder.
The Police said Sarita after murdering her husband told her neighbours that he deserted her and hence she would not file any missing complaint of her husband.

The Boisar MIDC police also said that accused Sarita had recently murdered one of her Bengali customers, as he was carrying Rs1 lakh with him. The official added, “She has not told us where she disposed of the body.”

The Police also added that accused Sarita practices black magic and that she reportedly murdered a third person as a human sacrifice reports HT.

Mid-Day sources said nearly 300 tantrik video CDs and 500 religious idols and pictures at were found at an in-house temple along with the presence of several kilos of used condoms in the septic tank where her husband was buried.

The recovered skeleton has been sent for forensic examination said the sources.
